We' were in Sanibel in June of this year and drove to Captiva for breakfast and some shopping. We love this place. Have been there several times in the past for breakfast and took our friends. The atmosphere is really great As we dined outside and could catch all the activity. Breakfast was wonderful and a most delightful way to... More

We ate here because it was one of the few restaurants near Southseas with a full bar. The drinks were great, they actually had a Zombie on the drink menu. However the food was dreadful!!! Had the crab wonton appetizer which sucked. I had the macadamia crusted Mahi which had no taste and was the worst I have ever had.... More

After three previous trips to Captiva we finally stopped in here for dinner last week! We sat inside as it was still a little too warm for the patio dining option at 6pm but during the winter months the patio would be an awesome option. The live entertainers were fantastic and just the right volume from inside! The food was... More

We stopped in for breakfast. I was surprised that no one was there. I ordered an omelette which came with breakfast potatoes and "fresh fruit" which was hard, unripened slices (not good). My husband ordered a Belgian waffle which looked wonderful. The service was quick, and the waiter was attentive. We will be back.

The restaurant has the most amazing food, an amazing location and lovely ambience. It was the same for each of the five years we are coming to Captiva. And then there is the other thing there which never seems to change, the totally unfriendly, disinterested and unnerved staff. So far we still went for the other advantages but after last... More

Actually this place should get 5 stars just for being open when all the other restaurants were closed form 3:30 - 5:00pm. This place was not our first choice, not our second but it was the only place open. I will say the food was good, the nachos were HUGE, our waiter was really good. Will go back just to... More

I wanted to try this place based on the trip advisor reviews. I was not disappointed. The vibe was relaxed and the food was great! I ordered the nachos. They were the size of a hubcap! And delicious! The mango banana daiquiri and the watermelon colada hit the spot too. I didn't need an entree but had to have dessert.... More

We stopped here for dessert and a nightcap a little bit before they were ready to close but the bartender assured us that it was quite alright to stay and enjoy the dessert in the outside eating area. The night was wonderful so eating outside was peaceful and breezy. The desserts were big portions that we actually ended up having... More

Everywhere we ate on Captiva was very expensive and this was no exception. The food was good and my husband said it was the best key lime pie he has ever eaten.

We had a delicious lunch that hit the spot, but, mainly, the manager was amazingly generous to us. She gave us double cupped cold drinks to take to the beach and assured us we were in a safe parking place. When my husband returned after our swim and went to buy another cold drink, she,again, was awesome. Definitely would return... More
